Welcome to The Maverick Potter! We are a family-owned pottery gallery and studio in the heart of the Rocky Mountains. Much of the work in the gallery is made on-site by owner & studio potter Mark Rittmann, but we represent upwards of 36 local and regional artists as well. Our bright gallery is filled with functional and decorative wares that make a distinctive addition to any home.

We look forward to seeing you!

Mark & Suzanne Rittmann

ArtWalk 2016 begins June 24th!

The Maverick Potter completed six kiln firings in anticipation of our big ArtWalk weekend: one soda, one hi-fire reduction, three mid-fire electric, and one raku. Our estimation is that this totals 60 cubic feet of ceramic art! The pictures below are from the soda kiln, unloaded 6/24 at 7 a.m.

In addition to Mark's work, we were restocked by artists Mary Jursinovic, Bill Wilson, Brigitte Egli, Machiko Erhard, Brice Turnbull, Laurie Embry, and Helen Martin.

We will be having a gallery reception on Saturday, June 25th beginning at 5 p.m. with light & fruity refreshments. At 6 o'clock, we will be joined by Andrea Earley-Coen for old-timey Americana fiddle music with a select group of local musicians, and she has promised to bring her dancing clogs!
